A few months ago I tried designing a small repeatable design suitable for in a magazine. I came up with this interlocking crochet design (no mosaic crochet option this time - I know that’s weird for my designs) that features a geometric design on the right side and a floral design on the wrong side.

It was mostly a happy accident with a few on-purpose tweaks to get the design looking so neat on both sides!

Ultimately, the magazine didn’t have space for this design. But that’s ok, I’m happy to publish it on my own.

I wanted to make a wrap, but the repeat section of this design is small enough to use as a placemat, pillow, bag, blanket, etc.

The “floral” part actually comes from the design that shows up on the “wrong” side. “Wrong” isn’t necessarily wrong, it’s just the back side.

I don’t call it the front and back because I don’t want to confuse you when you’re making your front or back stitches. While crocheting, it doesn’t matter which side of the project you’re looking at, a front stitch is made in front of the other layer.

The Locked Filet Mesh (LFM) interlocking crochet method uses only chain spaces and double crochets to create a mesh; two colors are worked alternately which creates the pattern.

Normally, I also include an overlay mosaic crochet pattern but this design is interlocking crochet ONLY because the technique creates the magical dual-sided design.
